Problem finding inbox and pam_authenticate failed problem

Chris Beech-2
Testing installation of Dovecot.  Log is showing two errors.  Any ideas how to fix this thing???

dovecot: May 07 05:19:06 Error: auth-worker(default): pam(Yoda,127.0.0.1): pam_authenticate() failed: User not known to the underlying authentication module
dovecot: May 07 05:21:48 Error: IMAP(Yoda): open() failed with mbox file /var/mail/Yoda: Permission denied
